Set in New York's shady underbelly of crime, we follow Rhoda Gray, alias The White Moll, as she strives to do good but finds herself framed by criminals who also blame her for ruining their schemes. Rhoda Gray devoted her life protecting the poor and weak in the underworld of New York City, and became known as The White Moll, a fearless crime fighter.
